James Balog: Extreme Ice Survey (2007- present) Since 2007, James Balog’s Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) has worked to tell the story of a planet in flux. With innovative methodology combining time-lapse imagery and cutting-edge science, EIS is recording and sharing the world’s most extensive ground-based photographic glacier study. Nearly a million photographs reveal the extraordinary ongoing retreat of glaciers and ice sheets, helping people to understand the reality of climate change and providing visual evidence vital to scientists studying glacier dynamics. EIS has installed 27 time-lapse cameras at remote sites in Greenland, Iceland, Nepal, Alaska, and the Rocky Mountains and conducts episodic repeat photography in Iceland, Canada, the French and Swiss Alps, and Bolivia; and has been the subject of a PBS documentary, a feature-length documentary, a National Geographic book, and numerous magazine and newspaper features. In addition, EIS has been alerting the world about ice and climate change via appearances before Washington policymakers, a touring exhibition, displays in public venues (including Denver International Airport) and multimedia presentations at corporate, scientific, and global policy conferences.
